A Sad Duty

Hello blogger pals. Today something beary sad happened.

A little sparrow bird hit one of the house windows and broke its neck.

 It was a cute little bird with a bit of yellow on his head.

I told Mama that I would dig the grave for the little bird.

We have a bit of a memorial garden in our back yard... and I thought I would bury it beneath the heart-shaped stone. That way the neighbourhood cats can't dig it up!

Whew... digging grave holes is hard work.

There we go little bird...

And there's the headstone...

Of course, you say a little prayer for the bird as well.

And I scratched a rough R.I.P. into the rock to...

  6. Thanks guys - at least it wasn't a crime scene and I didn't have to track down a neighbourhood cat and give it a talking-to!!

    1. Glad it wasn't a crime scene as well and very glad Spooky wasn't involved either.

    2. Lucky for Spooky she is an inside cat... the list of her victims is limited to spiders, which I have to say is not altogether a bad thing!
